Dr Nafisa Wilkinson, UCLH gave this year's BDIAP Kristin Henry Lecture which is awarded to someone considered by the BDIAP to have contributed significantly and exceptionally to histopathology throughout their career. Dr Wilkinson's presented her lecture on Mesenchymal tumours of the uterus: a journey through the last century!

Dr Wilkinson undertook part of her training in Manchester and highlighted the contributions of iconic Manchester pathologists, including Fred Langley, Hilary Buckley and the inimitable Harold Fox in our understanding of these tumours. She then brought us up to date with modern developments in classification and management of these problematic tumours, emphasising the essential role of pathologists in clinical decision making.

Professor Dame Nancy Rothwell, President, University of Manchester presented this year's Public Lecture - A Stroke of Bad Luck, discussing the implications of inflammation in stroke and many other neurological diseases such as dementia, which collectively are a massive cause of morbidity and mortality.

This session featured a lively discussion with Professor Rothwell giving her insights on the ground breaking work being undertaken in Manchester at the University in collaboration with Salford Royal NHS Trust on the role of inflammatory mediators in the production of brain injury. She described ongoing research which may have a role to play in managing clinically devastating conditions such as stroke.

Early detection and management of gynaecological cancers
An early highlight of the meeting was the session on the early detection and management of gynaecological cancers, featuring innovative methods for early recognition of these common tumours in women, organised by researchers and clinicians from Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust and the Division of Cancer Sciences of the University of Manchester.

Undergraduate Day
Dedicated sessions for medical undergraduates organised by students themselves gave an opportunity for students to gain better understanding of pathological processes and career pathways in pathology.
